Minutes- April 2013
There were no minutes for this board in April 2013. In lieu of the regular business meeting, the ACA members hosted a "Colon Cancer Health Forum" which was open to the public. This event was moderated by Dr. Guillermo Sanchez, a member of the Area Council on Aging. It featured three physicians who presented information to the attendees regarding the prevention, diagnosis and treatment options for cancers of the colon. The Area Council on Aging members wish to thank Amy Copeland at Civista Medical Center, and our guest presenters: Dr. Nagula, Dr. SJ Patel, and Dr. K. Mathur for donating their time and talents to make this event such a resounding success. In addition, personnel from the Charles County Health Department were on site to provide information about screening and services for persons relative to colon health. Sonja Mahoney, Vice Chair of the ACA and a small business owner in Charles County donated the sandwiches for the luncheon. The staff of the Richard R. Clark Senior Center and the Aging & Senior Programs Division also helped to plan, shop, and make the necessary arrangements for this special event.
